  3. No FF the rule is if you don't win the book you buy it off Amazon to support Arrse. Done
     
  4. I'm hoping for a better start to the competition year than last, didn't win a thing.
     
  5. Right that survey is closed now.

    Bump - still a week to go on this competition. Remember, the more that enter from ARRSE the less the chance of someone from Rum Ration winning (which they have been doing quite frequently of late! :) )

    24 hours still to go in this first book competition of 2013. If you have not entered then why not have a go; it's free and a bit of fun. If you are entering then make sure you read the question. Many have not read question 3 properly! :geek: :evil:

    Competition now closed and a very popular one it was. However many did not read question 3 properly and therefore have missed out on the chance of winning one of these great books. Anyhoo, the winners, in no particular order are:


    • fast_knights
    • tremar90
    • cooper1999
    • Ark_angel

    As ever I will be getting in touch by email with these guys for contact addresses.

    Q1 Contact with Royal Navy & Kriegsmarine A = He supplied both with ships equipment
    Q2 Why Codename SNOW - A = It was a close anagram of his name
    Q3 and the one causing most of the angst: Owens moved to Canada - what name did he use there A= Mr Brown.

    Q3 Many fell foul of the opening sentence in wiki (that well known source of accurate information :) ) which gave his name in later as Mr White. I accept that but the question was when in Canada which if you had scroilled down and read further would have seen it was Mr Brown he used in Canada :

    Arthur Owens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Not a trick question, just one that required some reading!
     
  11. I couldn't be arrsed to answer the questions. Can I have a book anyway?
